Katy Perry may not have been in the house for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night, but the five-time winner certainly appreciated all the trophies from afar.
Perry had been up for seven awards and managed to take home five of them at the fan-voted awards show, hosted by “The Big Bang Theory” leading lady Kaley Cuoco. So, what did Perry win? She nabbed Favorite TV Guest Star for her cameo on “How I Met Your Mother,” Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year for “E.T” featuring Kanye West, Favorite Music Video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and Favorite Tour Headliner.
“THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight! We won so many!” she tweeted. “Now I need to get more books 2 successfully display them!”After her split from Russell Brand had been confirmed, Perry later revealed that she’d skip the awards show. She has been lying low since the New Year’s announcement that she and her husband of one year would be divorcing.
But she wasn’t the only absent winner excited for all the love from her fans. Taylor Swift was home in Music Town when she nabbed the prize for Favorite Country Artist. “Thank you so much for my People’s Choice Award! Favorite Country Artist! PARTY!!!” she tweeted from her home in Nashville. “Seriously- thank you for voting.”
Other big winners of the night included Emma Stone, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2″ and Demi Lovato, who not only took home the trophy for Favorite Pop Artist but also performed her song “Give Your Heart a Break” during the show.
